Hendrie Award

Nominations of pupils towards the Hendrie Award, for contributing to their community, should be completed by the 5th of June.  Please use the online form below to nominate.

The Children’s Champion  – Hendrie Family Award
At a meeting in the Crown Inn Hall on the 6th of May 1864, the burgh of Galston was established by the householders of the town. One of the main proposers of this act, was a banker by the name of Mr John Hendrie. With this in mind the Hendrie family, who still live and work within the Galston area, have donated a fund for the establishment of a prize for the pupils of Galston Primary School. This is to encourage the children to promote Galston and help their fellow pupils and members of the community, wherever possible.
We are a Rights Respecting school in conjunction with members of the Hendrie family and staff in school we award a trophy at our annual prize giving in June.
The award is given to a child who has acted in a way that ensures one or more of the articles from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child are promoted within the school and/or the wider community of Galston.
Children should be nominated by staff, House Captains and by community organisations using a simple nomination form. The nominations will then be considered by school staff and a representative of the Hendrie Family.
The Children’s Champion will receive the Hendrie Family Trophy.
We are looking for children who are or may have been an active member of a youth group or club and been a good ambassador. Alternatively, someone who has been involved in community initiatives ie a litter pick, gardening etc or someone who has helped and supported other children to feel included and safe.
Nomination forms are available from the school office or using the link below to access an electronic form.
We would encourage you to share this information as widely as possible and for you or any member of the community to make your nominations by 5th June.

Thank you

Work Well, Gang Faur
